The certification organizations and seals

The Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ) wishes to remind you that the products that are not approved constitute safety risks. You should always require appliances and equipment meeting the existing standards.

Recognized organizations

Every gas-powered equipment or appliance sold in the province of Québec must be approved by an organization which is recognized by the RBQ.

These organizations must affix their seal or label to attest to the compliance of the equipment or appliance with Canadian standards. The products certified by a certification agency which is not Canadian must bear the indication “c” or “ca” in lower case characters, at the 8 ’o clock position, or a maple leaf on the seal or label.

As this requirement has been in force only since February 24, 1999, one may find products bearing the certification marking without that “c” or “ca” indication, such as:

  • T.R. Arnold & Associates (TRA)
  • ICC Evaluation Service, LLC (ICC ES PMG).

Certification seals and labels

Below, the RBQ provides to you a non-exhaustive list of the seals and labels which are relevant to the gas-powered equipment and appliances, as well as the contact information of the various certification agencies.

Other organizations could be recognized by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC). Consult the Directory of Accredited ProductThis link open an external website of the Régie du bâtiment du Québec in a new window. to know their scope of accreditation.
